BBC Analysis programme on combatting racism - For many white people their race is not part of their identity. Race, racial inequality and racism are things that people of colour are expected to talk about and organise around. Not anymore. Anti-racist activists and academics are now urging white people to recognise that they are just as racialised as minorities. The way to successfully tackle structural racism, they say, is to get white people to start taking responsibility for the racially unjust status quo  https://learningonscreen.ac.uk/ondemand/index.php/prog/1482EA17?bcast=130351532

BBC podcast on 'I can't be racist'Social psychologist Dr Keon West explores racial bias, and the concepts of both conscious and unconscious bias, drawing on the latest psychological and sociological research.
